Albuquerque, NM: Hawk Watch Trail

nm

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 1.6 miles


Wind past parched arroyo and panoramic views on this 3.2-mile out-and-back that leads to a seasonal bird-watching Mecca in Albuquerque‰Ûªs Sandia Mountains.

Enjoy a springtime trek into one of the Sandia's most prominent southern canyons. You’ll cross an arroyo and begin a moderate climb that continues as this route branches east at the national forest boundary.

Rewards await: Expansive views of the Manzanita Mountains and a bird-watching outcrop 1,000 feet above the parking area. Schedule your hike during Hawk Watch International’s banding season (early March-May 5) and you may get an up-close raptor education from on-site volunteers.
